MADRID (AP) — Radamel Falcao was held scoreless as Rayo Vallecano’s winning run at home was halted by Celta Vigo in the Spanish league on Monday.
The veteran Colombia striker scored the winner in Rayo’s win against Barcelona in the previous round, but couldn’t capitalize on his chances in drawing with Celta 0-0.
The result ended Rayo’s five-match winning streak at its Vallecas Stadium this season, keeping the promoted Madrid club in sixth place, five points behind leader Real Sociedad after 12 matches.
Rayo, back in the top-flight after two consecutive years in the second division, was trying to win six in a row at home for the first time since the late 1970s. It had won 10 straight first-division league matches at home against Celta.
